Great location for a bar/restaurant, too bad...

that there aren't more people there. I'm always apprehensive about the freshness of the food when there are only 2 or 3 tables occupied. Despite what should be a great location inside the lavishly restored Union Train Station with tons of validated parking this restaurant just hasn't taken off. You... read more

We went to the Rat Pack show there and the buffet was very nice and the show was terrific. Valet parking and generous spacing between tables made the evening even nicer. Overall it was a memorable evening and a very good value.

My fiancé and I went there last night for his birthday. We had not been there in quite a while, and I'm not sure why, because as always, everything was top notch. The steaks are cooked to perfection--I usually order the petit filet, but last night decided to try the pan seared sesame crusted tuna. WOW is all I can... More

SLOW service - 40 people - vegetarians being the last to be served dinner as "the chef is heating the lasagna in the microwave" which came out steaming but was cold in the center for all that were served - as a result, those at our table being polite also had cold or very cool dinners as well - no...

A group of Masons dined at Luciano's Cotton Club for the first time last night. We all had a wonderful time and great food. The decor is evocative of "Casablanca." The pan seared tuna was excellent and cooked to request. My salmon was excellent. The steaks were very good. My wine was $2 less than I usually have to pay... More

From the moment we arrived at the restaurant it was a negative experience. The bartender was nowhere to be found--a very pleasant waitstaff woman made us drinks. We then went up and outside for a pre-reception cocktail hour. They 'ran out' of common beers and wines very quickly. it was not because guests were drinking them excessively. We were told... More

So Luciano's Cotton Club, owned by Maxwell's, sponsored a visit by a Rolling Stones imitation band at Union Station, where they are located. It was a great time but had a few flaws. The ad's and the tickets had different start times, which I was able to verify by calling Luciano's. The food came out late and was mostly fried... More

Should have known, when a restaurant offers "Groupons", .something's probably not right. Terrible service, inexperienced staff, very few tables occupied, excuses, waitress and hostess blaming the chef, no manager available, and he, Garo, never returned phone calls.....tried 5x. Completely unresponsive. Same thing at Luciano's Cotton Club.....prime time on a Saturday night at 7:20, there were only 4 tables occupied. These... More
